As per Government of India rules candidates belonging to certain categories are admitted to seats reserved for them based on relaxed criteria. These categories are:
- Other Backward Classes (OBC) if they belong to Non-Creamy Layer (NCL)
- Scheduled Castes (SC)
- Scheduled Tribes (ST)
- Persons with Physical Disability (PD)
Benefit of reservation shall be given only to those classes/castes/tribes which are in the respective central list published by the Government of India.
1. OBC candidates:
For OBC candidates belonging to non-creamy layer, 27% of total number of seats are reserved.
These candidates will be required to produce the original certificate issued on or after January 1, 2013 by a competent authority in the prescribed format (see Appendix II). The certificates must be produced at the time of admission, failing which their offer of admission will be cancelled. While submitting the completed application, the candidate needs to enclose only an attested copy of the certificate. If at the time of applying, the OBC(NCL) certificate is not available, the candidate may send an attested copy of the certificate later. However, it must reach the HSEE office before June 01, 2013, failing which the candidate will be considered as a general category candidate.
2. SC/ST Candidates:
15% and 7.5% seats are reserved for candidates belonging to SC and ST categories, respectively. Candidates belonging to these categories will be admitted on the basis of relaxed criteria, compared to general category (GE) candidates.
SC and ST candidates will be required to produce
original caste/tribe certificate issued by a competent authority (see list given in Appendix-I) at the time of joining, failing which they will not be considered for admission. While submitting the completed application, the candidate needs to enclose only an attested copy of the certificate. Seats remaining vacant in these categories will not be filled with candidates belonging to any other category
3.Persons with Disabilities (PD):
Across all categories, 3% of seats are reserved for PD (including leprosy-cured) candidates, as specified by the Government of India, who are otherwise fit to pursue the course as in the rank list of HSEE-2013 ( See sec.14 for rank list of Information Bulletin). For any type of disability (viz., locomotor, visual, speech and hearing), benefit would be given to those candidates who have at least 40% permanent physical impairment in relation to a body part / system / extremity / extremities / whole body, etc. The candidates in this category will be required to be certified by a Medical Board constituted by the Institute.
The Medical Board will decide the following:
- Whether the candidate qualifies for the benefits under this category, and
- Whether the disability is likely to interfere in his/her studies.
The decision of the Medical Board in this regard will be final.
